Former vice president Cheney challenges Pence on Trump's foreign policy
13 March, 2019, 16:19 | Author: Taylor George
Former Vice President Dick Cheney conveyed the message to Vice President Mike Pence over the weekend that he believes portions of the Trump administration's policy resemble that of the previous White House.
Cheney, whose daughter Liz Cheney is a Republican congressional leader from Wyoming, doesn't often criticize Trump publicly, though he did speak out against Trump's racist claim during an early 2016 campaign speech that Mexicans are "rapists".
Trump Jr. isn't the only one to have questioned Cheney's hawkish agenda.
The standoff between the two was described by one attendee as "confrontational in substance, but not in style".
"I worry that the bottom line of that kind of an approach is we have an administration that looks a lot more like Barack Obama than Ronald Reagan", Cheney said to Pence, according to the Post, which obtained a transcript of the discussion that was off-the-record.
Cheney's remarks, which were first reported Monday by The Washington Post, were confirmed by a person in the room.
Cheney also raised alarm over news reports that Trump does not spend sufficient time with his intelligence briefers as well as over frequent staff churn in key national security postings.
It seems like Cheney's biggest annoyance is that Trump is trying to get our allies to pay for their own defense.

"I don't know, that sounded like a NY state real estate deal to me", Cheney said, according to The Post.
Pence responded by pointing to Trump's "commitment to rebuilding our military and restoring the arsenal of democracy and noting that the president is "calling on our allies to live up to their commitments to do more".
The Washington Post reports that the two clashed at a closed-door retreat hosted by the American Enterprise Institute in Georgia, on subjects including the withdrawal of troops from Syria and the tougher stance taken by the Trump administration toward North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
Pence reportedly deflected the criticism with quips of his own.
"But we think it's possible to demand that your allies do more to provide for the common defense of all of our nations and, at the same time, reaffirm our strong commitment - whether it be to the transatlantic alliance or to our allies across the Indo-Pacific", he said.

"This AEI event was off the record, as a result we have nothing to share", said Veronique Rodman, AEI's director of public affairs.
Mr Pence defended the administration and stuck by Mr Trump's push to win more financial help from allies and decrease the United States military footprint in Syria, while maintaining a strong posture overseas.
